National Pediatric Transplant Week takes place the last full week of National Donate Life Month in April. It focuses on the powerful message of ending the pediatric transplant waiting list.
Throughout Pediatric Transplant Week, partners share patient stories (candidates and recipients) and innovative care; donor families whose children have saved and healed lives through organ, eye, and tissue donation are honored; and recipient families share their thanks and milestone celebrations.
Donate Life America (DLA, Transplants for Children and Texas Organ Sharing Alliance would like to thank the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS), the American Society of Transplantation (AST) and the American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS) for their partnership in developing and promoting National Pediatric Transplant Week.
National Pediatric Transplant Week is part of Donate Life America’s National Donate Life Month—celebrated in April each year, Donate Life Month features an entire month of local, regional and national activities to help encourage Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors and to celebrate those that have saved lives through the gift of donation.
